This was my second visit to Donegal Independent Hostel and it was every bit as good as the first. Linda and Andy are fantastic hosts, the rooms are comfortable and the kitchen has to be one of the best equipped of any hostel I've stayed in.

It was so lovely staying here. The Kitten added a fun element to it. Everything was really clean and comfy. Perfect location if you are on your way to Slieve League and despite the road it was very quiet. Thank you Linda!! Would love to stay here again.

Thank you for a wonderful stay! I spent two weeks travelling round Ireland and stayed in a different hostel each night and this was one of the best. Linda is a fantastic host - she really takes care of her guests and the place is really clean and tidy. The kitchen is well equipped and it’s a short walk into town. A really relaxing place to stay. Thank you!

I stay at Donegal Town Hostel each year on my way to school in Glencholmcille. The hostel is clean and the staff is friendly and welcoming. It is an easy walk into town (maybe 1 kilometer?) beside the main road, but there is also a lovely walk through the fairy woods.The bed is comfy and the kitchen is well equipped. My room did not have a private bath, but the bath was just a few steps down the hall.

Fantastic place. Came here in May 2019 and enjoyed it so much came back 2 months later. Hosts are excellent, the double ensuite room is very nice, and location is ideal, being only a 10 minute walk (or 20 minutes via the scenic route) into town centre. Room was very clean. Hosts very helpful with advice but never intruded. Highly recommend.

This is a lovely, old building, but beautifully maintained and graciously staffed by the owners. We stay here every summer and will be back next year. Donegal is a wonderful and friendly, medium-sized Irish town with great shopping, Pubs, and Restaurant.

Great hostel. The house is over one hundred years old and feels comfortable. The room that I stayed in was easy access to a real shower/ toilet and a toilet very close. The walk into town can be 10 minutes or one can go through the fairy woods by the river. The host is super attentive and kind. Great place to stay!
